***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
(With Help From Daughter Erys)
As a comic book/graphic novel fan, I enjoyed hours of trying my hand at drawing and sketching the examples Stan had in his book.  I was able to enjoy the book with my daughter and we drew for a few nights before she and I could get the swing of the examples

My daughter, Erys, is 10 and we were drawing together so it’s a good way to bond with someone younger that is interested in drawing comics.  AND keep in mind it does show the basic human anatomy (nothing bad) but let’s keep in mind my daughter is 10 and she was mature enough to look at the images for what they are representing.  Kids who are interested in drawing and writing for the comic industry will have to learn the basics somewhere and this is a good place to start. Stan has shown them how to do that perfectly in his books.

My only issue with the book was that digitally it was very hard to view on a kindle fire.  You would need to use a computer or a larger tablet (I have an iPad2).  Other than that it was smooth sailing!   I loved the quality time I spent with the KID too!  :-)
